|How Deep Is Your Lizard Love....|
BUILDING THE NEW LIZARD
Some (Not all) lizards can develop the important qualities of trust and calm, plus accurate memory and ability to distinguish safe from unsafe creatures. All this works for the well adjusted lizard to live in peace and harmony with other creatures, such as humans, dogs, cats, birds or other kinds of lizards. Imagine seeing a "lizard" that knows enough to return to a car or truck that he rode in to get somewhere. Several of my adult male iguanas would do this every time I took them to a place to get out and walk around. When you see a big lizard, (20 pounds and 5 feet long) walk back to a car or truck and climb back up to the rear seat, all on his own, you just have to rethink any previous ideas about the intelligence in lizards. These same iguanas would always return back into the house on their own after spending their days basking in the backyard.
A safe, friendly, domestic environment helps the iguana build trust and grow out of the primal state. But they are all unique and individual, each with different sensitivity, attitude and potential. By careful cultivation or mere fluke of happenstance, the New Lizard may be born, to what degree, it varies, there is no guarantee.
UNFOLD YOUR LIZARD LOVE - Many people fear lizards or lack lizard love, but hearts can be moved to new attitude. To see lizards do the unexpected is but one of the mysterious ways that can stir up radical amazement, stir up the sense of awe and wonder. It is good, because lizard love is the fulfilling of the law.
